Pulitzer Winners Announced
Posted by: Courtney Jones

The Pulitzer Prize winners were announced yesterday afternoon. They are:

Fiction

Olive Kitteridge, by Elizabeth Strout (Random House)

History

The Hemingses of Monticello: An American Family, by Annette Gordon-Reed (Norton)

Biography

American Lion: Andrew Jackson in the White House, by Jon Meacham (Random House)

Poetry

The Shadow of Sirius, by W. S. Merwin (Copper Canyon Press)

General Nonfiction

Slavery by Another Name: The Re-Enslavement of Black Americans from the Civil War to World War II, by Douglas A. Blackmon (Doubleday)

ad-gordon-bIt appears that Gordon-Reed is the new Junot Diaz. She’s already won the National Book Award, was nominated for the National Book Critics Circle Award (along with Olive Kitteridge), and is the first African American to win the Pulitzer history prize. She’s still waiting to hear about the $50,000 George Washington Book Prize, which will be announced May 28th–the same day as the Pulitzer luncheon. I dare say the odds are stacked on her favor.
